Technical issues and Breakages

Studio Pottery London is equipped with the highest quality kilns and equipment. Experienced and trained staff only will handle and fire your ceramic work. However, by the nature of ceramics there remains a risk of technical failure for which we cannot be held responsible.

Prolific Makers

Ceramics is an expensive process and we try hard to keep the costs down. We price the classes based on an estimated output. We do not like to cap peoples creativity, but we have very limited shelf and kiln space.

You will be asked to select your preferred pieces for firing, glazing etc. if you exceed the number of items specified by your tutor. All other items will be recycled by the studio.

Collection of Works

You will be emailed when your pieces are ready for collection, usually this is within three weeks after the last date of your course, but this can take longer depending on our kiln firing scheduling.

We request that you collect your finished work as soon as possible once you have received the pickup instructions via email to help keep our storage area clear, therefore avoiding damage. 

If finished ceramic work is not collected within 2 months of the end of the course we will sadly have to dispose of it.
